New IPAD opinions on Burnsville separation agreement

April 25, 2012

IPAD – the Minnesota government office that handles information compliance issues – has released a new Data Practices advisory opinion. The opinion clarifies which portions of a separation agreement with a Burnsville School District executive are public, and which are not. The Star Tribune reported that the Burnsville School District released an unredacted copy of the agreement on Monday, in response to the IPAD opinion.

The District’s buy-out of the executive’s contract, and its subsequent refusal to release significant documentation related to the buy-out, sparked controversy and media coverage earlier this year.
